Benefits of hiring a skip over Christmas

Christmas skips

Reduced stress: 

Renting a skip can take the stress out of managing your Christmas waste. You don’t have to worry about cramming everything into your bins or making multiple trips to the tip. You may take the opportunity whilst you have the skip for some post-Christmas declutter. At David Brown Skip Hire we have skips of different sizes that are ideal for domestic use plus you may consider sharing your skip with a neighbour.


At David Brown Skip Hire we will deliver your skip to your door and collect a time that’s convenient for you so, you don’t have to worry about transportation. Plus, if you need a parking permit, we will arrange that for you. Find out more about parking permits for skips and our parking permit service.

Environmentally friendly: 

Skips help to reduce landfill waste by diverting recyclable materials from the general waste stream. At David Brown Skip Hire 85% of the waste we collect in our skips is recycled. At our yard we have a dedicated waste transfer station where the waste is sorted for recycling.

Recycling centre restrictions

Renting a skip is often more cost-effective than making multiple trips to the tip. Especially since the County Council have implemented several restrictions across Essex Recycling Centres, including booking your visit in advance unless you are a blue badge holder. In addition, they have introduced limits on the number of certain types of waste which can be taken to the recycling centre within a period of time. Find out more about the restrictions.

Tips for using a skip over Christmas:

  • Choose the right size skip: Consider the amount of waste you expect to generate. You don’t want to rent a skip that’s too small, but you also don’t want to pay for a skip that’s too big. Call our team 0800 9981216 and we can advise on the right size skip for your requirements.
  • Position the skip safely: Place the skip on a level surface and away from overhead hazards. Leave enough space for the skip hire lorry to access the skip.
  • Don’t overload the skip: Overloading can damage the skip and make it difficult to collect. Read about how to avoid overloading your skip.
  • Separate recyclable materials: At David Brown Skip hire we offer recycling services for most materials, such as cardboard, paper, and plastic and are committed to recycling 85% of waste we collect.


Renting a skip is a great way to manage your waste over the festive season. By taking these steps, you can help to reduce your environmental impact and make the holiday season a little bit easier.
